Vienna Blue is the seventh album from the Finnish producer Doc and the Russian pianist Lena Selyanina. Where their earlier production has been predominantly ambient in nature, these are more intense songs building strongly on Lena's sophisticated piano compositions and her emotionally touching, expressive pianism. Stylewise the album moves in the genres of avantgarde, neoclassical, jazz and blues.
The album got its original inspiration from Franz Schubert and his music, Schubert being Lena's favourite classical composer. Some tracks like Wanderer, Doppelgänger and Der Leiermann contain recognizable musical and thematic references to Schubert's works; for the rest of the tracks, the association is more indirect. Get ready for an adventure into strangely beautiful and imaginative music!
Note! A 24bit audiophile version of the album is available as a torrent from Mininova.
